Lisa Taxin, PA-C

Lisa is an NCCPA-certified Physician Assistant who brings advanced training and an innate, artistic eye to her work in Aesthetic Medicine and Wellness to provide you with all Fillers, Botox, Dysport, and Kybella.

Lisa graduated from Temple University’s Tyler School of Art with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree and began her career as a make-up artist. However, she soon transitioned to a career in medical sciences after seeing first-hand the scope of the medical field from both the patient’s and caregiver’s perspective. She obtained a Radiologic Technologist certification from Crozer Chester Medical Center and went on to graduate from Thomas Jefferson’s Physician Assistant program.

When she discovered the specialty of Aesthetic Medicine she realized that it was the perfect balance of creativity and science that she had been seeking. Her experience as a makeup artist and sculptor allows her to assess and enhance the unique beauty in each patient. She is dedicated to respecting her patient’s individual anatomy to achieve undetectable, natural looking results.

She is a clinical educator, training other providers Essential and Advanced Injection techniques and Microneedling with Plasma Rich Platelets (PRP). She is licensed to practice medicine in Pennsylvania by both the Medical and Osteopathic Boards, and attends frequent trainings to stay current on the latest aesthetic techniques.
